ECS RS400-A Supports 2GB DDR2 DIMM's

The ECS RS400-A motherboard supports both 184-pin DDR DIMM and 240-pin DDR2 DIMM. There are two sockets for each type. Based on the specification, it says each slot could handle up to 1 GB of RAM. But today, I put in a Kingston 2 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 667 MHz DIMM into slot 0 and the computer boots into Windows with 2 GB of RAM. So now the question is, does the mother board support up to 4 GB of RAM or is it limited to 2 GB of RAM total?

Well, apparently, the motherboard would not address more than 2 GB of RAM. I tried the Kingston 2 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 667 MHz DIMM along with my PQI 1GB PC2-5400 Single Channel DDR2 DIMM, but the computer would not boot. After replacing the Kingston 2 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 667 MHz DIMM with a PNY Optima 1 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 DIMM stick, the computer booted up fine with 2GB of RAM. So the Kingston stick went back to the store.

Title: Crashes with ATi Radeon Xpress 200
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: Well, after playing Battlefield 2 for a few days after doing the driver update, it crashed again. Although not as frequent. I even reduced the 3D performance. But the crashes still occur. Finally, I traced it down to one of the two memory stick modules that I installed in the system. I had bought . . .
